Johns Hopkins Team Sees Risk Stratification Value in Rx Fill Data

In what its authors believe is “the first article to assess the impact of integrating EMR-based ‘e-prescribing’ information into the more conventional claims database when undertaking risk adjustment and predictive modeling,” a team of researchers –that included Predictive Modeling News Editorial Advisory Board member Jonathan P. Weiner DrPH, Professor of Health Policy & Management and of Health Informatics; Director, Center for Population Health Information Technology (CPHIT); ACG System co-developer and Executive Director of Research– had this to say: “We found that medication fill rates enhance the performance of some base models more than others. These improvements were lower when base models already included diagnostic codes or diagnostic-derived scores, thus signifying the potential usability of medication fill rates for risk adjustment in operational settings that have incomplete diagnostic information.”
